7 members enjoyed a walk along the River Kent in Kendal and then enjoyed Fish and Chips outside. It was great to get together and enjoy freash air and convivial fish and chips.
We are more reliant on nature’s interconnected web and delicate balance than ever. Life on earth would not be possible without nature’s services, yet, these are exceptional times in which nature is sending us a message. Viruses are causing loss of lives and livelihoods; forcing our lives to come to a stand-still. Nature is showing us that life as we know it, is on the verge of a breakdown. This World Environment Day, it’s Time for Nature. Time to re-imagine our relationship with nature; and put it at the heart of our decision making. Club members particularly those in the environment group are busy working to improve the environment through work in the Sensory Garden and raising awareness with the Go Greener Calendar and Trash to Treasure!
The Covid lockdown has increased the isolation already experienced by people living with dementia. The Singing for Memory team rapidly produced another photo book of memories for their clients and new song book to go with it. It was very apt that the distribution coincided with Mental health awareness week with the theme Kindness matters. The book has given people joy and a way of reconnecting with the regular weekly Singing for Memory sessions. Clients who had not previously received the CD and songsheets distributed in 2017 were also given one each so they could have a singalong at home. The books were financed by previous generous donations by the public.
